Member Ratings and Notes
N: Orange custard, glycerin, after a while becomes waxy.
P: Oily and sweet, honey. Leafy and tobacco notes.
F: Becomes more dry in the finish, with a wave of white wine then long warm fade.
Nose is fruity, with apples, cotton candy, vanilla, floral notes, and hints of Burgundy wine.  Palate is quite sweet initially, with various spices and vanilla tones.  In the long finish, the whisky grows dry and peppery.  This is an interesting single malt with a nondescript though enjoyable attack of sweetness, followed by a drying, long finish.  Decent. 
I like most Madeira finishes and this is not any different.  The trouble is might be over-done.  It has a classic winey note with some sharpness that is too over-powering.  Good....but could have been so much better. 

n:  Light.  Old furniture perhaps


p:   Hint of the oak wood and light fruits.  Finish is sticky but indistinct.
